Solid progress yesterday, today.
I enjoyed a beautiful afternoon on Alki and banged out 300 words. More importantly I feel like writing again. The second novel is starting out with a definitively dark tone and I'm going to have to pull it back from the abyss a bit to keep it safely in YA-land. I might need to write a little bit on the contemporary fiction project just to get the darkness out of my system, but then again - darkness seems to be the coloration that sells novels best these days.
